This episode discusses US workers’ rising productivity even while wages have remained flat, US corporations evading taxes, a Gallup Poll on the poor US job picture, the redistribution of billionaires’ wealth and the rising corporate debt problem. The show also examines the ways and means of providing capital to worker co-ops, and why technical “progress” excites capitalists and worries workers.

Briefly, we wanted to update you on where Truthout stands this month.
To be brutally honest, Truthout is behind on our fundraising goals for the year. There are a lot of reasons why. We’re dealing with broad trends in our industry, trends that have led publications like Vice, BuzzFeed, and National Geographic to make painful cuts. Everyone is feeling the squeeze of inflation. And despite its lasting importance, news readership is declining.
To ensure we stay out of the red by the end of the year, we have a long way to go. Our future is threatened.
We’ve stayed online over two decades thanks to the support of our readers. Because you believe in the power of our work, share our transformative stories, and give to keep us going strong, we know we can make it through this tough moment.
We’ve launched a campaign to raise $44,000 in the next 7 days. Please consider making a donation today.
